The U.S. Senate passed a Federal transportation bill but the House of Representatives remains divided on its own version of the legislation. The bill calls for the reauthorization of funding for state projects.
The Senate’s two-year reauthorization bill for $109 billion, known as H.R. 7, was passed on March 14th. The House of Representatives is now debating a five-year $260 billion bill but House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is reportedly considering opting for the Senate’s version instead.
